Cavendish Conference Centre, London, W1


An instructive, focussed landscape conference aimed at providing inspiration and practical solutions for your public space designs.

Top reasons to attend:

  • Improve how you work in landscape by taking a holistic approach to design

  • Develop a better working relationship with professionals from different disciplines

  • Gain insight into the latest trends in landscape and the public realm from The Landscape Institute

  • Hear the nitty-gritty detail on key technical areas, including SUDS, BREEAM and integrating infrastructure into landscape design

  • Find out how to prolong the life of your project through developing a management and maintenance schedule with the client

Landscape architecture is becoming more respected by clients and the public. As a result, demand for high quality public space is growing.

Yet buildings and public space are often viewed separately, and therefore a sense of place is not always successfully achieved.

By approaching building and landscape design holistically, the design team can ensure we have an inspiring, intelligent public realm.
